[Pulp-list] Process Change: No Release Candidate for Bugflix Releases

For bugfix releases (also known as "z" releases due to the incrementing
of the number in the "x.y.z" version representation), we're changing the
process slightly, as indicated in the subject of this mail.

The current process is to release a Beta for testing, and if no blocking
bugs are found in a week, it is promoted to Release Candidate (RC). The
release then sits at Release Candidate for a week before becoming Generally
Available (GA). The process change is that with the next bugfix release,
2.8.4, instead of promoting the Beta release to RC, it will be promoted
directly to GA, which removes a week from the bugfix release cycle timeline,
allowing bugfix releases to happen more frequently.

"y" releases like 2.9, 2.10, etc. are not affected by this process change,
and still include a Release Candidate stage.
